Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Podcasting is hot. No, sizzling. How do you catch the wave before everyone and their uncle does? How do you find and subscribe to the best podcasts? Make it more convenient to listen to them? Create your own podcasts, and put them out there? Read Todd Cochrane’s book, that’s how.

Cochrane starts by capturing what makes podcasts so exciting: the ability to find and create programming that touches you personally, in an age where commercial radio has become the same bloodless mass-produced stuff, up and down the dial, everywhere you go.

Next, he shows how to choose the right software for you, comparing packages such as Doppler Radio, iPodder, jPodder, iPodderX, and even software for Linux and Pocket PCs. You’ll learn what you need to know about podcast aggregators (including emerging sites focused on specific topics); then walk through subscribing and listening to the podcasts you want.

Next, Cochrane turns to becoming a podcaster. You’ll find plenty of tips for preparing and organizing your show -- and for getting the right equipment, even if your budget is practically nothing. There’s coverage of where to record your podcast for maximum quality (one surprisingly quiet option for live interviews: your parked car). Cochrane walks through the recording and post-production process in detail, helping you avoid mistakes that can make your podcast unlistenable.

Finally, he turns to the crucial issue of finding the right hosting provider and plan. Bandwidth for delivering podcasts costs money; Cochrane offers practical tips for controlling those costs. Hear what you want, broadcast what you want -- the power is now officially in your hands. Bill Camarda, from the August 2005 Read Only

From the Publisher
“…this book will help readers choose software, subscribe to the best podcasts, record a podcast…and more…” (Town Oline.com, 13th December 2005)

“…worth a look if you’re just starting out…” (iCreate, No 24, 2005)
